The weather in Sri Lanka

The Northern and Eastern parts of the country are dry areas, while the wet zone can be found in the South Western region. If you are traveling to the Central Highlights, you will be surprised by the drop in temperature due to the high mountains – make sure to pack your warm clothes when going for instance to Nuwara Eliya. This mountain area, together with Kandy, are always experiencing a mixed climate.

Malcolm Ramesh

A customized trip with Ramesh

Ramesh is a wonderful tour guide picked us up from the airport and took us to hotel evening.
Next day (1) pick us at hotel took us to Malacca to our requested spots and many spots we didn't know about also some wonderful food experiences in out of the way places very local foods. At all times he would be asking if we ok concerned due to the humidity. This was a full day and into the evening. Told us of good place for massage near our hotel and the markets
And restaurants.
Day 2 very wet took us to the Bahu Cave temple, a Chinese temple the hot springs and around the city to the main highlights.
His knowledge of the history of Malaysia is very good his English is very good dropped us at the airport next morning. Having a private tour guide is very good way to see Malaysia.
The cost was very reasonable the experience was wonderful and Ramesh was fantastic.

Gloria Hugo

Masterpieces of the Louvre: Skip the Line Tour

We lucked out when we got Hugo as our tour guide. It’s was our first time at the Louvre and so we wanted to hit the high points and details that a normal tour might not cover. He did it all and it was clear that he was incredibly educated on the contents, the architecture, and the ways around moving through what could have been an intimidating museum. People around us would stop to listen to him speak because he provided interesting and consice perspectives. If you get a chance to request him, do it!
